Olweus Bully Prevention Program
Our district implements the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP) in all of our elementary schools. Through this program students are educated on different types of bullying and the 4 rules to stop bullying from taking place. Teachers hold a classroom meeting once a week where they discuss bullying and give students a chance to talk about things going on in our school.
Definition of Bullying according to the OBPP:
“Bullying is when someone repeatedly and on purpose says or does mean or hurtful things to another person who has a hard time defending himself or herself.” © The Olweus Bullying Prevention Group 2007
4 Anti-Bullying Rules
- We will not bully others.
- We will try to help students who are bullied.
- We will try to include students who are left out.
- If we know that someone is being bullied we will tell an adult at home and school.
